Lightening Fires ~ Richardson for Governor! ~ Not His Time ~ Laura ~ Aunts and Uncles

Good 60º weird morning. Pressure is going up and down. Some clouds. Yesterday we hit 104.3º !!! OMG. Even a ground squirrel ran up on the porch to get at the dog's water! I turned on the sprinkler in the back and the gray squirrels were sitting in the spray!

.... temp just dropped to 59º.  Oh wait, now it's back to 60º!

There are a number of lightening caused fires in Josephine County ... Jeannie Patterson said there was lots of thunder early this morning about 2:30. Debbie Flores  took a picture of a fire not far from her at Shan Creek...


Some AWESOME friend Dennis Richardson is running for Governor of Oregon!!! YEAH Dennis!!!!!

Aunt and Uncle Day

Aunt and Uncles Day honors a very special pair of relatives. They are your mom and dad''s brothers and sisters. We hope you have a lot of Aunts and Uncles. The more, the merrier. Our Aunts and Uncles mean a lot to us. Among other things, they are most likely:
  • The backup caretaker when mom and dad go out, or are at work.
  • Real characters at family get-togethers and events.
  • Someone we can talk to and related to..... some things we just can talk about with "parental units".
  • Sound counsel and advice.
  • Someone who takes you to fun places and events.
  • Someone whose house is a great place to sleepover, especially if you have cousins.
  • The ones who give you great presents for birthdays, Christmas and special events.
  • And, the benefits of Aunts and Uncles goes on, and on, and on, and.........
